I was research fellow at the Department of Statistics in the Open University in Milton Keynes before coming to the LSHTM in July 2011. I have a PhD in Mathematics and Statistics from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and a BSc in Actuarial Sciences from ITAM, Mexico.
I am co-organiser of the distance learning module EPM202 (Statistical Methods in Epidemiology). I am also involved in the in-house version of this and in the Survival Analysis course.
I have a theoretical background in Statistics with emphasis on the use of abstract geometric ideas to develop new statistical models and methods. Gradually I have moved onto the applications and I have done research on a wide range of areas. Before joining the LSHTM I was interested in developing new frailty models for survival analysis and on some extensions of the case-series methodology used in Pharmacoepidemiology. I work mainly with Neal Alexander and we are currently doing research on Spatial Analysis of Cluster Randomised Trials and on some aspects of multivariate count data for use in parasitology.
I am a member of the Tropical Epidemiology Group.
I am associate editor for Statistical Methods and Applications the official journal of the Italian Statistical Society
